Oh, Hail. Beautiful Devastation

Weather in Colorado can be unpredictable. When green tinged thunderclouds roll in, I cross my fingers we don't get hail. Yesterday, pea-sized hail grew to marble size in seconds. After the quick storm, I checked out the plants. Most of the flowers made it through. I let out a held breath. Eight miles away, golf... Continue Reading →

Fake Summer is Killing Me

As much as I love summer, its fake relative is killing me this weekend. You know what I'm talking about; the stretch of a couple gorgeous days in spring that beckon us outdoors to engage in summer activities after a long winter of hibernation Yeah, that. It's supposed to reach 80 degrees today. My body... Continue Reading →

Back in the Water for #SharkWeek

The crashing of the sea drowned out my beating heart as I stepped into the waves with my surfboard. I would share this massive body of water with all kinds of sea creatures including sharks. The last time I surfed, the rhythmic waves in Costa Rica made standing up on a board as simple as... Continue Reading →

Summer’s Race for Stillness

Summer fun includes a wide range of activities. Some can be enjoyed at breakneck speeds while others require taking a moment to be still and take in the surrounding beauty. It's wildflower season in the high country. Summer is so fleeting at high altitudes, it's hard to find them at their peak. I went on... Continue Reading →

Only in California…

I don't want you to hurt the poor little guy or gal. Don't you think toucan bird is redundant or am I missing something?... Continue Reading →

Area 51, Where Are You?

We continued our Epic Road Trip and drove through the desert. I expected temperatures to soar as we approached Death Valley. I mean, it's the scorched valley of death and hell on Earth to all who enter, right? I had packed two gallons of water, just in case. Come on. I was a Girl Scout... Continue Reading →

The Epic Road Trip Continues

We were on an epic road trip. The gap between our car and our son's began to close. He and his posse had an earlier start and were a couple hours ahead, but pulling a trailer has its way of slowing a car down. They were only 25 miles ahead. We could catch up. We... Continue Reading →

Epic Road Trip

I'm writing my 501st post in my car. Don't worry, I'm not driving. Danny has both hands on the wheel, but he's going 85 MPH in the right lane. I know! I've always called him an old man with a hat, but he's cruising today. The speed limit is 80. I love it! We're in... Continue Reading →

Ready for a Wild Ride?

I'm ready. My bags are packed and the drinks are on ice. Soon, I'll be on the road. My husband, Danny, and I will travel almost thousand miles in two days. We've driven more miles in less time, but plan to stop along the way. What kind of adventures are ahead? There will be quite... Continue Reading →
